hypocrisy? >> neither side is clean here. this is just election year table pounding. we need china as a trade partner. we don't want a trade war with china. we're very dependent on their economy and they're dependent on our economy. mitt romney has invested in china, has family trusts invested in china. both sides have done this here. if you want to call it hypocrisy, call it hypocrisy, but nobody is clean here. >> david: by the way, steve, it's not just china, $2.8 billion in department of energy money went to a spanish firm that did solar stuff. this is not just china. we're outsourcing a lot of money overseas. >> two points, david. romney, what he does it's vol temporary. when the government does, it's taking our resources and playing politics with it. it's about trade barrier, stealing our intellectual property rights, what both candidates should be focused on, not this thing about who invests more in china. >> david: if it's private money, may it go where it will. private investors are free to do with their money, but not my money, not my tax dollars. >> i have no allergic rel
